    It adds a handful of new and interesting mechanics to its tactical battles, nearly all of which improve the formula in tangible ways, but otherwise plays it fairly safe.

    If you’re after a strategy game that’s not as stressful as others in the genre, Valkyria Chronicles 4 is a great choice. Its beautiful art, story and characters are the icing on a well balanced game that rewards the time and effort you put into it. Keeping on top of some of the nitty gritty can be a bit much at times, but thankfully this doesn’t entirely negatively impact the overall experience.

    It’s a very slow paced game overall, so whether Valkyria Chronicles 4 is for you depends on how patient you are and whether the deep story can cover over the gameplay drawbacks.

    All it does is force me to admit that we can all sometimes become prisoners to our own nostalgia.

There is a decent amount of variety present in the gameplay and the classic approach they’ve implemented keeps you coming back for more time and time again. The combat is thoroughly enjoyable because each battle feels very creative which in turn kept the combat fresh and interesting throughout. In terms of content the game has a decent amount for you to be getting on with and this content takes place in a fantastic world which means you never get bored. This series is known for its difficulty and there’s no change here so expect to get frustrated every now and then. There isn’t really anything different and you do get the conclusion that the developers played it really safe. it’s been a long time since the last Valkyria Chronicles and I must admit that I didn’t think that a new game was coming to the series, but I’m glad Valkyria Chronicles 4 did finally make it because it was without a doubt worth the wait. If you like a charming and immersive story full of interesting and unique characters then you will love what Valkyria Chronicles 4 has to offer because it really does deliver a tale that’s absolutely brilliant. This isn’t the only brilliant thing either and if you’re a fan of the series then I’ve no doubt that you’ll be more than satisfied with the gameplay. There are a variety of missions for you to get to grips with and the combat that’s present in these missions is very creative which makes it stay fresh and interesting throughout. You will however have to deal with a challenge when it comes to the gameplay though and you will suffer with a few frustrating moments because the difficulty can be a little overbearing at times. That being said I enjoyed the challenge and when it’s all said and done I enjoyed Valkyria Chronicles 4 a lot on the whole and it definitely gets a big thumbs up from me. Full Review »

Las cinematicas aunque no son tantas como me gustaria son visualmente epicas. Full Review »
